The first shot was as i came over I-10 on the west loop looking towards the galleria complex. The sunlight was sharp and orange and filtered through a bright blue cloud and there was the slightest hint of fog.
The second was on the south loop just before Weslayan of a field that houses a church garden and an seemingly infinite number of electric towers that receded into a blue green fog.
I am making many more mental notes of locations as i run across them.
I fell asleep today before i could touch my camera, but i woke up at 10:30 and completed my assignment: balancing (exposure, not color ... yet) ambient light and flash.
Another cool thing i did this weekend was making a few homemade light modifiers. The first is what i call a strobe lamp made from the bottom of a milk carton. Works deliciously!
